Centrist Emmanuel Macron swept to victory in France’s presidential election on Sunday. Macron led his far-right rival, Marine Le Pen by 66.1 percent to 33.9 percent, with the interior ministry having counted 99 percent of the country’s 47 million registered votes.
Macron and Le Pen came top of the 11 candidates in total who participated in the first round of voting on April 23. While the outcome of Sunday’s second round is now clear, the results will be officially proclaimed by France’s constitutional council on Thursday, May 11.
